When we consider the term landscapes, “land” is only a fraction of the equation. Landscapes are the sum total of events, resources, and activities that have left their imprint on a place; both physically and culturally. By viewing coastal cultural resources through a landscape perspective, we can gain a more thorough understanding of how communities are intertwined with their surroundings.
Our researchers have developed uniquely themed landscapes to represent the cultural and environmental commodities of Escambia County. Each landscape includes three featured sites or events. Featured sites and events are recognized as being critical to Escambia’s development, culture, structure, and vitality. While each landscape strives to include as many sites and events as possible, our inventory is by no means exhaustive. This project is ongoing, and will continue to grow.
